Hello shyboy. Open your inventory, write something in search there and wait fetching ALL your items till the last one. After that, move to a region with less lag. Smith or  Lime are a protected land which are recommended. There, try to change outfit. Choose one with just the necessary stuff (skin, shape, hair, eyes, pants and shirt) without any attachments.

If the problem remains test your avatar: In Viewer 2 give the command: Menu Develop (Ctrl+Alt+Q) --> Avatar --> Character Tests --> Test Male / Female. Usually this command is enough to fix your problem.

Also be sure that you have cleared your cache manually:

(XP) - C: \ Documents and Settings \ (USER NAME) - Application Data \ SecondLife and
C: \ Documents and Settings \ (USER NAME)\ Local Settings \ Application Data \ Second Life

(Vista) - C: \ Users \ (USER NAME) \ AppData \ Roaming \ SecondLife and
C: \ Users \ (USER NAME) \ ApplData \ Local \ Secondlife

(Win 7) - C: \ Users \ (USER NAME) \ AppData - Roaming \ SecondLife and
C: \ Users \ (USER NAME) \ AppData \ Local \ Secondlife

Delete everything in those folders and restart first your computer and after the program. Usually the folder Appdata is a hidden folder. (Windows Tools \ Folder Options \ View & enable Show Hidden Files/Folders)

Hi Shyboy,

You don`t say which viewer you are using, but can you try downloading a different one and seeing if your avatar looks the same on there. If you are using the LL viewer, try one of the TPVs such as Phoenix https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Third_Party_Viewer_Directory

Also if you have reduced the size of your viewing window, stretch that back to full size and if you are using dual monitors, make sure that you have SL on the primary one.

@ Vannessa, go to your library clothing folder and drag one of the avatar folders there onto your avatar. If that doesn`t fix you, TP to Smith (things load faster there) clear your cache and relog back to Smith. Open your inventory and wait there until it has fully reloaded without doing anything else other than typing in th inventory search bar to prompt loading.
